Nissan, one of Japan’s most famous car manufacturer brands, is planning a breakthrough in electric vehicles that will surpass other giants. Last Friday, Nissan released a new prototype developed at its production plant in Yokohama, Japan.
According to the company, this prototype is about solid state batteries that will be used for electric vehicles planned to be produced in the future. The company plans to have these batteries fully ready by 2024 and then be used in electric vehicle development. In addition, the car giant is working with NASA for these batteries.
Nissan plans to launch its first solid-state battery electric car in 2028
It is rumored that Nissan plans to launch its first electric car with solid-state batteries in 2028 using solid-state batteries, which they plan to complete the prototype in 2024. It plans to launch its first electric vehicle that uses a solid-state battery.
Nissan Corporate Executive Vice President Kazuhiro Doi, who made a statement regarding the bet, said that this cooperation with the participation of NASA and the University of California San Diego will benefit both NASA and Nissan. Doi, ‘NASA and Nissan both need a battery of the same kind’ used the phrases.
So why are these batteries so valuable?
Solid-state batteries can theoretically charge faster, have more power capacity, and provide longer use than lithium-ion batteries currently used by multiple electric cars. In other words, the range of vehicles is longer with a smaller and cheaper battery. Nissan says it plans to use solid-state batteries in all of its vehicle lines, including its pickup trucks. It is planned that these batteries will be fully charged in 15 minutes and will be half the size of the batteries currently used.
Solid-state batteries could reduce the price of charging batteries with electricity to $75 per kW/h by 2028 and even $65 per kW/h thereafter. This means that these batteries could help make electric cars much more affordable, and at one point even reduce the price to one-of-a-kind fuel vehicles.
